Change Your Camera Position

When you come upon a photo opportunity and raise your camera to shoot, you are not compelled by any state or federal law to remain in that position. Sure, the subject may look good from the first position that you choose to shoot it, but it may look even better from another angle, so why not try it out? For the car photograph shown in Figure 3-15, I quickly shot a photo while the street behind the car was empty.

Figure 3-15 Cool car and an OK photo

Next, I stepped out into the street and saw what the curb prevented me from seeing—big old balloon tires with really wide sidewalls, as shown in Figure 3-16.

As I got out of the street (because the light was about to change), I saw my favorite shot: the hood ornament shown in Figure 3-17, looking so elegant and aloof, reflected in the shine of the hood. The point here is that if I had not taken the time to look at subject from several different angles, I would have never gotten my favorite shot.
